I’m guessing he’ll dig deep here to make the Ryder Cup team on points. That driving range “episode” — it was hardly an episode. It showed SOMEBODY WHO CARES and somebody who uses the range as Francesco Molinari does as a place to try out the shots you will actually need in competition. So if the shots are lousy you have a reason to be upset. As for the poor play in Germany he’s too smart and too talented not to learn from that. I’m bullish on him in every way.
It’s a perfect date. I can’t wait. It’s THE perfect date. I’d rather be playing myself. As a native Michigander and Lions sympathizer this match will be No. 2 on my dial if it’s played opposite the football game. (At least until halftime when the Lions are out of it.) But like everyone else I think the date is a winner.
